    Descriptive info: Deloitte Survey Highlights Issues and Risks of Third-Party Business Relationships.. March 22, 2012.. Anti-corruption.. A recent.. Deloitte.. survey that included over 1,200 respondents from a wide range of industries brought to light the growing attention of multinational corporations (MNCs) on conducting due diligence on third-party business partners.. This survey is especially timely given the increased role third-parties have played in recent Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) enforcements by the U.. Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission.. Here are some of the most revealing statistics from the poll:.. About two-fifths of the respondents said their companies use between 100 and 999 partners, potentially exposing them to a foreign bribery risk.. Nearly 25% of respondents perform due diligence and risk assessments on less than a quarter of their organization  ...   pressure to do extended due diligence and a small minority of about 6% said they didn t want to alienate the sales channel.. As MNCs continue to grow and expand into emerging markets, compliance and due diligence on third-party providers will become a priority.. org is helping MNC s lessen the risk of operating in emerging markets and utilizing third-parties by collaborating with companies to develop and share practical tools and best practices, provide education, and advocate for the use of supply chains to strengthen a rules-based global system of commerce.. At CREATe.. org, we want to help MNCs build on the management systems already in place to extend them to better protect IP and prevent corruption in the global supply chain..

  • Title: CSIS Talk: Global Supply Chains | CREATe.org
    Descriptive info: CSIS Talk: Global Supply Chains.. May 16, 2012.. What are the development opportunities and ethical responsibilities for MNCs working with global supply chains today? These topics were the focus of a recent presentation at the.. Center for Strategic and International Studies.. (CSIS).. The panel discussion featured CREATe.. org s President and CEO Pamela Passman and.. Ben Heinema.. n, Senior Fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Harvard University.. Heineman opened the discussion with insights from his.. High Performance with High Integrit.. y framework.. Focusing on high integrity, he believes that big multinationals have an obligation to do three things with respect to labor markets and offshoring:.. Develop and enforce labor standards within suppliers.. An important first step is to qualify suppliers and also make sure they are enforcing labor standards, at a minimum to local law (i.. e.. , non-discrimination, child labor, minimum wage, limits on hours of work, health and safety, etc.. ).. These actions should be followed up by audits to re-qualify and ensure compliance to standards.. He recognized that it s quite difficult to manage, particularly in remote and developing regions; and also incredibly complex and nuanced by local cultures.. Ensure safety and quality standards in products.. He argues for going beyond what the local law requires and suggests  ...   rule of law and local enforcement have not kept pace with the economic growth of emerging economies.. She acknowledged that there are good laws on the books however the local enforcement of laws is very limited.. Also, the rules-based trading system is not addressing adequately these issues either.. Today, we re seeing increases in the misappropriation of trade secrets (the topic of CREATe s recently launched.. white paper.. ), a rise in corruption and counterfeit products, which are estimated to be valued at $250 billion/year.. On the topic of counterfeits, Passman discussed how they are on the increase across every sector in pharmaceuticals, auto parts, chemicals, pesticides and even seeds.. She shared that in a Congressional hearing last year it was reported that there were 1800 cases of counterfeit electronics in U.. weapons systems covering more than 1 million suspect parts; and in the semi-conductor industry, counterfeits have cost 11,000 jobs in the USA.. To close, Passman spoke about the offering being developed by CREATe.. org: first, a set of.. Principles.. which define the issues and commitments by MNCs and suppliers to protect IP and prevent corruption; and second, process-based tools and performance measures that are cost-effective, easy to implement and credible..

Keith Maskus.. , Economics Professor and Associate Dean, College of Arts and Sciences, University of Colorado Boulder and also an Advisory Council member for CREATe.. Jane Nelson.. , Director of Harvard Kennedy School s Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative.. Each weighed in on the broader discussion of the day:.. Safeguarding Intellectual Property and Preventing Corruption in Global Markets.. Locke discussed the research that he and his students have been conducting - and the topic of an upcoming book - on globalization and labor standards.. He shared his insights on how to build a culture of compliance.. He mentioned that there are good laws on the books in most jurisdictions, but often times they are not respected by the private sector or enforced by the government.. How do we get suppliers to respect laws and get serious about compliance? He believes that building capacity is crucial suppliers often need help with technology, management and other systems.. He also noted that  ...   sector is crucial in encouraging the use of IP in emerging economies.. Finally, he noted that more information and data is necessary to learn more about the channels and effects of trade secret theft.. Nelson shared insights from her work in collective actions over the past decade.. She highlighted three lessons:.. Capacity building is critical to driving change in supply chains.. It is imperative to scale up employees and provide technical assistance.. She mentioned that government supply chains offer great opportunity to start this trend.. She also believes that it s important to involve and train local auditors and journalists on these issues and the elements of capacity building so that they can begin to shape debate.. There is value in sector-specific activity.. Each sector has different challenges and issues and as such, should work collectively to develop systems that work for their sector.. Local and country-level engagement is essential.. She cited.. Transparency International s Integrity Pacts.. integrity pacts provide a mechanism to ensure integrity in the contract from procurement through execution.. These issues are complex and challenging but not insurmountable.. org is grateful to these thought leaders for sharing their depth of knowledge and also providing recommendations for moving towards a global trading environment that is fair and sustainable..
